U.S. NAVY OFFICER AVIATION WORKING GREEN UNIFORM

The Aviation Working Green Uniform (AWG) was first introduced somewhat haphazardly during the World War I era as Naval aviators sought a uniform that would provide warmth and comfort in the face of winter weather and the harsh conditions pilots faced in biplanes with open cockpits. They settled on the Marine Corps’ Forest-Green woolen uniform, but in 1922 the Navy for some reason banned the uniform, only to bring it back in 1925. It of course underwent minor tweaks over the first few years after it was reintroduced, but when it was discontinued in 2011 it had the distinction of being surpassed only by the Service Dress White Uniform as the Navy’s oldest unchanged Officer uniform.
 
Basic components of the Officer AWG Uniform include Forest Green single-breasted coat with notched lapels and roll collar, Forest Green trousers, Khaki shirt, Khaki belt with gold clip and buckle, Green Combination Cap, and black dress shoes. Brown dress shoes are optional and in fact became the favored choice of footwear though black safety shoes could be prescribed for wear; the Forest Green Garrison Cap is also a prescribable item.
